Sauté them in vegetable oil until nice and tender.

Add the tomatoes and chilies.

Toss in the spices…..it’s starting to look good….you should smell it!

Add it to the pot, cover and simmer away….45 to 60 minutes until the rice is tender.

While the soup simmers toast up the tort strips. 350* for 8 minutes or until brown.
